Toggle bitmap button on .res file

Hello,

Is it possible to create a toggle bitmap button using only the .res file?
I tried with the GetDDescription function its work well, but when I use .res file this doesn't work.
Also, when I use the FORCE_SIZE on .res file I get an error.

BITMAPBUTTON BUTTON_ID
{
    TOGGLE;
    BUTTON;
    FORCE_SIZE 16;
    ICONID1 5160;
    ICONID2 5159;
}

Thanks

hi,

something like this will work as you expect (i hope)
The trick is to create a two columns group and a dummy statictext so the button will have the "right" size.

	GROUP
		{
			COLUMNS  2;

			BITMAPBUTTON BUTTON_ID
			{

				SIZE 32;
			    TOGGLE;
			    BUTTON;
			    ICONID1 5160;
			    ICONID2 5159;
			}
			STATICTEXT { DUMMY; }
		}

One side effect is the icon will not be centered. You can see on this thread why.

Cheers,
Manuel

hi @m_magalhaes,

Thank you much, that works.

I have an another question concerning Description Resource, I don't know if I post it here or I must create a new post.

Here is the code:

GROUP
{
    REAL MYOBJECT_PITCH { UNIT DEGREE; CUSTOMGUI REALSLIDER; MIN -360; MAX 360; STEP 1; }
    BITMAPBUTTON MYOBJECT_STRAIGHTEST_PITCH
    {
        SIZE 16;
        BUTTON;
        ALIGN_LEFT;
        ICONID1 5160;
    }

    REAL MYOBJECT_ROTATION { UNIT DEGREE; CUSTOMGUI REALSLIDER; MINSLIDER -90; MAXSLIDER 270; STEP 1; }
    STATICTEXT { JOINENDSCALE; }
}

And here screenshot of what I want to do:

hi,

Group is the key in UI. Simply add a SCALE_H; property for your slider. so for that two columns group, the slider will take all the place minus the button.

	GROUP
		{
			COLUMNS  2;
			REAL ONEFLOAT { CUSTOMGUI REALSLIDER; SCALE_H;}
			BITMAPBUTTON BUTTON_ID
			{

				SIZE 16;
			    TOGGLE;
			    BUTTON;
			    ICONID1 5160;
			    ICONID2 5159;
			}
		}

Cheers,
Manuel
